Buccaneers make fireworks and retirement-related roster moves

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Jason Pierre-Paul was the big name to injure his hand in a fireworks accident, but he wasn't the only NFL player to do so: cornerback C.J. Wilson took a step away from football after losing two fingers last year in a July 4 fireworks accident, causing him to be placed on the reserve/retired list. The Bucs just released him from this list, and the Tampa Bay Times reports he'll be playing in the CFL.

Taking his place on that list: safety John Lowdermilk, who the Bucs claimed off waivers last week. Apparently he wasn't interested in going through an offseason of practice with little view of a regular season roster spot. Understandable, though it means the Bucs will likely look to add another player at some point this week.

So hey, players retiring and moving on. Business as usual during OTAs.
